It never ceases to amaze me how many people are never satisfied with what Canon does. If the 5D3 falls short of their expectations, why buy it in the first place?
For crying out loud, the 5D3 is half the price of the 1Dx. If someone wants the 1Dx features, they should reach into their pocket and pony up the funds to buy the 1Dx. It's that simple.
I elected to add the 5D3 to my bag as a second body to my 1D4. I knew what the specifications were when I made the decision to buy it. It performs as advertized. Firmware updates to deal with bugs that show up are appreciated and I'm thankful that the manufacturer offers them up. I don't expect Canon to turn my 5D3 into a 1Dx.
Anyone who purchased a 5D3 knew full well what it's features and limitations were when they made the decision and laid their money down.
If you own the 5D3, which is a great camera, just pick it up and go take some photos.
I think most of us do... The forum is just that, it's a forum, a place to talk shop, offer opinions, advice, etc.
I certainly knew the feature set of my 5d3 when I made my purchase and have absolutely no regrets, I love it and shoot with it almost everyday. That doesn't mean I wouldn't like the red focus point! I still wish it had it, I still shoot without it and I still love my 5D MkIII...
Checking back through the forum rules you'll be sure to see that nowhere does it mention "No Wishful Thinking comments in threads".
I understand and tend to think on your thought lines, then I thought, well, I have one and love it but I'd sure like the red focus point, especially in AI servo or for low light situations... nothing wrong with wishing.
Gotta go now, my camera is calling!
All the best!
